Mini Review - What Maisie Knew

What Maisie Knew (out Aug 22) is the story of a fractured family told through the eyes of a 6-year-old girl. I grew tired of the film's narrow focus. It's hard to gain a full understanding of Maisie's situation when you're only seeing parts of the story and only listening to parts of conversations. Still, there's an emotional impact in the final 30 minutes that is quite effective. Grade: B-.
